    Saw this at the Calgary International Film Festival, and loved it.  Tried to figure out if it was a comment on something, and if so, what?  My best guess was the futility and beauty of creation from the creator’s perspective, but my fiancee disagreed.

    Interesting subversion of Pygmalion. Right up until the end i was like “blah…Why isn’t this sexist trope dead yet?”

    Too painful to like. I saw the ending coming about halfway through. I’ve seen too much heartache to really appreciate this.

    Gets better on repeat viewing.

    All kidding aside, lovely little film.
